can someone give me a heads-up about the manhattan test centers?
is it true that they dont give paper and pencil and instead it's a dry erase board and marker?

can you get a lot of plastic sheets or just one at a time?
how was the overall experience, noise level, lighting, etc?

location and board+marker have nothing to do with each other. all locations use the same materials

I had my test at 100 William street in nyc. Ambience was ok, no noise but invigilator denied to provide extra pen or sheets in the beginning. I don't think GMAC has any rule for that; may be it's Pearson special.
